Hai Aradhana Sharma... Barely water can be given after 10 months. In the meantime you can have it. It's good to health. It's a good coolant. Soak barely overnight and cooker boil for 5-6 whistle. Then strain and have. Some will boil for 10-15 mins without soaking. I feel... the goodness to feel.. soaking and over boiling is required.
If it's a ready powder... boil in water for 15-20 mins,can add little sugar and milk. But it's better if you feed after 10 months.

hi aradhana, little moppets barley powder is fit to be given for baby from 6 months. it is good for constipation. however, as with all foods, start with very little amount the first day and gradually build up amount so that baby gets time to get used to it and also to check for allergies...
